In this health activity, learners explore breathing, lungs and asthma. Learners test their lung capacity by blowing air into balloons.
In this activity, learners experiment and collect data during a simulation of the fluid shifts experienced by astronauts' bodies in microgravity.
In this activity, learners will explore pi and the mathematical relationships between a circle's diameter, circumference, and radius.
In this activity, learners use a straight line to learn about circles. Learners measure and record the diameter and circumference of different sized cylindrical objects on a chart.
In this activity, learners explore the concept of permeability to better understand why amphibians are extremely sensitive to pollution.
In this activity, learners will measure the length of a shadow and use the distance from the equator to calculate the circumference of the earth.
In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height.
In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners investigate the solubility of gas in water at different temperatures. This experiment will help learners determine if temperature affects solubility.
In this activity (located on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Temperate Rain Forest Activity), learners will identify a group of deciduous trees to study.
In this activity, learners observe colors in the flame of a burning candle to explore connections between matter, light, color and temperature -- basic concepts of matter and energy.
In this activity, learners investigate the relative growth of lengths, areas, and volumes as cylinders are scaled up.
In this mathematics activity (page 4 of the PDF), learners will explore the relationship between the diameter and circumference of an object.
Using a real-size sketch of a baby elephant's footprint, learners estimate, measure and record the width (diameter) and outside edge length (perimeter or circumference) of the footprint.
In this activity, learners use a string and pair of scissors to find pi in the world all around them. Take the circumference of a round object with string and cut the string to that length.
In this math lesson, learners practice measurement skills as they examine a soap bubble print. Learners follow a recipe to make a soap bubble solution.
In this activity, learners will measure the length of their shadow from the Sun and compare it three to four months later.
In this activity, learners work in pairs to measure each other's ankles with lengths of string.
In this math lesson, learners explore the real world meaning of slope. Learners conduct a balloon experiment in which they measure the circumference and flight time of deflating balloons.
In this activity (page 23 of PDF), learners conduct an experiment to determine how the size and mass of a projectile affects the area and the volume of an impact crater.
